The property

Martingale is a 19th century house boasting quaint character features throughout in the thriving seaside town of Torquay.

This terraced cottage is perfect for a small family of four or group of friends to lay their heads before an exciting seaside adventure in the beachfront area of Devon.

Find views of the far-reaching sea before entering the property driveway, where a private patio with outdoor furniture rests for you and your party to sit out on a warm day with a chilled glass of wine as you reminisce in this fabulous setting.

A quirky stable door welcomes you on entering into the charming open-plan living space; prepare a delicious home-cooked family meal in the well-equipped kitchen before tucking into meals on the spacious breakfast bar as you celebrate with a bottle and discuss the day's adventures.

Nights can be spent in the cosy lounge, complemented by a quaint electric log effect fire, two plush sofas and a large TV with a soundbar, a delightful spot to rest on the weekend beneath low character ceilings with exposed beams.

An open-tread staircase with a rail for support leads you up to the first floor, all gorgeously-renovated and decorated to a high standard for your comfort.

Retire to one of the attractive bedrooms for a snooze, choosing between a king-size or a twin, both with stylish grey carpets, fitted wardrobes and chic décor.

Enjoy waking up to the day in the large double walk-in shower, indulging in a refreshing rinse, preparing for the day ahead.

A stroll out of the property's doorstep brings you right into Torquay town centre, an exciting hotspot of South Devon, home to an abundance of shops, pubs, bars and restaurants, as well as popular attractions including Torquay Museum and Dinosaur Museum, Torquay marina and the Victoria Parade, with sandy beaches in reach.

Try your luck at a range of thrilling watersports on the sea, including paddle-boarding, kayaking, sailing, surfing, windsurfing and so much more, overlooking the amazing English Riviera.

Spend a day delighting in the classic English seaside at one of the many Devon beaches, visit Torre Abbey Sands, Meadfoot Beach, Hollicombe Beach, Paignton Beach and more, all differing with their own unique features but sharing in sandy seafronts, busy promenades, ice-cream parlours and amusement centres.

Meander along the breathtaking South West Coast Path, either by foot, bike or car depending on what you fancy, stretching for 630 miles, you won't run out of places to explore and sights to discover.

There are heaps of tourist attractions in this area; find wonder in the underground Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, make animal friends at Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, take a journey on the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company, or enjoy a memorable day at Splashdown Quaywest waterpark.

An unforgettable holiday awaits at Martingale, settled in the honeypot location of Torquay.
